Jade Cicada, real name Skyler Golden, is one producer whose been on everyone’s lips in the world of underground bass. The free form bass producer has only been releasing music for a few years now, beginning with his Eolian Oms EP, which was self-released in 2016. The promising young talent now delivers a third EP in two years.
